Biography

Personal Statement

I joined the Management School in December 2015 after graduating from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University with a PhD degree in Operations Management. I also obtained my Master’s degree in Operations Management from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and my Bachelor’s degree in Electronic and Communications Engineering from The University of Hong Kong. Prior to my PhD studies, I had worked in a FTSE 100 company as a Lead Engineer for several years.

My current research focuses on two areas: social responsibility in global supply chain management, and social media technologies in operations management. Some of my research papers related to these two areas are published or forthcoming in Journal of Operations Management (ABS 4*-rated journal), International Journal of Operations & Production Management (ABS 4-rated journal), and International Journal of Production Economics (ABS 3-rated journal). Besides, my research about the impact of sustainable supply chain practices on firms’ financial risk has received news coverage from several Dutch media outlets such as Supply Chain Magazine, Duurzaam Bedrijfsleven, and The Accountant. This research has also been featured on the Dutch Association of Investors for Sustainable Development’s (VBDO) website. Recently, I have been awarded a research grant by the British Academy to study the operational consequences of mandatory environmental reporting in the UK.

Currently I am co-editing a special issue and co-organising a research workshop on “The Use of Social Media in Operations and Supply Chain Management” for International Journal of Operations & Production Management (ABS 4-rated journal). The special issue will be published in 2020 and the submission deadline is 30 April 2019. The research workshop will be held on 21-22 March 2019 in Liverpool and the submission deadline is 31 December 2018.
